Three Central Florida men were among the five people killed in a wrong way crash on I-275 in Tampa early Sunday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a 2001 Ford Expedition was traveling south in the northbound lanes just north of Busch Boulevard around 2:12 a.m. and collided with a northbound Hyundai Sonata in the center lane.

Troopers said Jobin Kuriakose, 21, was driving the Sonata with three other passengers, Ankeet Patel, 22, Imtiyaz Ilias, 20 and Dammie Yesudhas, 21. All four men were part of the University of South Florida fraternity Sigma Beta Rho.

Patel and Yesudhas were from Melbourne, while Kuriakose was from Orlando and Ilias was from Fort Myers.

The Expedition burst into flames, burning the driver beyond recognition, troopers said. The driver of the Expedition, who still has not been identified, and the four USF students, all died at the scene.

Sunday night, about 100 people gathered near the crash site to hold a vigil. Troopers shut down part of the roadway to protect the students gathering to remember their friends.

Meanwhile, FHP officials are working to identify the SUV driver. They also are conducting more interviews with witnesses to determine if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
